From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cathryn Fox comes the first in the hot new Blue Bay Crew series that follows the sexy, blue collar Owens men who take over their family’s construction business in the small town of Blue Bay, CT.

Summer Wheeler is on the run. Hiding from the men who killed her father, Summer is on her way to her childhood cottage in Blue Bay when she runs into Sean Owens, the forbidden bad boy from her past. After giving him a fake name, she gives in to one steamy night with him, never expecting to see him again.

Sean isn’t sure why Summer is pretending to be someone she’s not, but he’ll play her game if that means he can indulge in one of his oldest fantasies – a night with Summer. He’s shocked to see her when he returns to Blue Bay, and even more surprised when Summer offers him a job renovating her old family cottage. Hot workdays turn into hotter nights, but when Summer’s secret catches up with her, she’ll have to decide if she can trust Sean with her heart—and her life.

Demolished nails the perfect combination of emotion, scorching intensity, and a touch of suspense that will draw readers to this fantastic new series!

Crystal's Thoughts:
Perfect for readers who enjoy stimulating second-chance romances, Cathryn Fox's Demolished was an easy story to luxuriate in on a hot summer's day!

A girl on the run pretending to be someone she isn't, a bad boy desperate to be good, and a small town of busybodies sure to entertain. Demolished begins with our heroine, Summer Wheeler, fleeing to her family's holiday home in Blue Bay. A picturesque town with a day's of old feel. Hiding from her ex who she suspects is out to harm her, Summer takes on the identity of her childhood friend, Jenna, when she finds the new identity left for her by her deceased father. With sparse clues left for her, she tries to uncover what her ex doesn't want her to know, and how her father's sudden death ties into it all. Her childhood crush is the last person Summer expects to run into in the small town of Blue Bay, but when she does, she can't deny the sizzling attraction still lingering between them.  And nether can he.... Sean Owens came back to Blue Bay for one reason, and one reason only. To live up to the man his father always wanted him to be. Chasing around a woman who clearly wants to be forgotten, is definitely not on his to-do list, but Sean can't resist the pull he feels towards Summer. The pull he's always felt. Can he assure Summer that she can trust him with all of her secrets, or will her past catch up with her first?

From their first meeting in that run-down diner, you could feel the sparks flying between Summer and Sean. Their history, which is slowly revealed through out the story, their continued connection and chemistry, pulled me in. It was a sweet romance between the two with just enough heat to make me sweat. The story was well-paced, the writing was absorbing, with likable characters, and I really enjoyed the quaint small town that it was set it. The one flaw in the story, which was an extensive plot element, was Summer's "fake" identity as Jenna. Everyone knew who she really was. She didn't fool anyone. Yet throughout the entire story, no one confronted her about it. It was baffling. Overall though, I delighted in this book and the Owens family captivated me. I look forward to more from this series!
